Packing is arguably one of the most stressful parts of the moving process. It is time consuming and can come with a lot of headaches depending on how much stuff you really have. Our professional South San Antonio movers are here to help. Here are three packing techniques we use to ensure your move is as easy and hassle-free as possible.
1. Start Early!
Procrastination can be dangerous when you are planning a move. People tend to push off packing until the last minute, which can lead to serious frustrations when you do not have what you need, and time is running out. Make sure you prepare for your packing process- create a budget, buy packing supplies, and make an inventory list of the items in your home that need to be packed up. Don’t know where to start? Call our South San Antonio movers- we have experience creating plans for even the most complicated packing jobs.
2. Clean out your house!
Moving is the perfect time to do a good purge of your belongings. Go through each room of your home and pull out those belongings you never use or no longer need. Throw a yard sale or donate those items to a local charity. The less items you have, the less time and money you have to spend on moving them. You will also feel great moving into your new home without the clutter
3. Be creative with what you already have in your home!
Do you have a lot of extra towels, clothing, or blankets? Use them to pack your fragile items in the kitchen and living room. Lots of big suitcases in your closet? Use them to pack heavy items that you don’t want to carry- you can roll them around instead. Have too many hanging clothes? Don’t fuss with taking them off the hangers- wrap them in garbage bags to create your own DIY wardrobe boxes. Save money by using what you already have creatively.
